The Dark and Other Love Stories
Excerpt

She got a boyfriend, which surprised her—
she hadn’t realized she wanted one. He was a mill boy she met while sitting by herself at the marina’s outdoor restaurant, waiting for her steak dinner. She’d learned this from her mother: a good way to meet people was to take yourself out for dinner.
     The young man fished on the weekends, and was cleaning his catch, slicing salmon and extracting their spines. She saw him notice her. Then he approached and offered her a fish wrapped in newspaper, the way another man might offer a bouquet of roses. “I like a girl with an appetite,” he said.
